Sechseläuten = Best excuse ever for taking half a day off, dressing crazy, drinking and exploding fireworks.

So yea, I totally got a half day holiday today to celebrate burning the Böögg (aka a snowman) until his head exploded! Apparently, the longer it takes for the head to explode, the colder and rainier the summer will be. Explode Böögg Explode!!!

Afterwards, I commented on how strange an event that was and Andre reminded me that we predict our weather with a groundhog....
